LINTHICUM, MD, June 8, 2021 — NFM Lending is proud to announce that they ranked #1 in Maryland and #37 nationally in the Top Mortgage Lenders 2021 by Scotsman Guide

Each year, Scotsman Guide compiles a list of the nation’s top-producing mortgage companies and publicly traded banks by their total yearly mortgage volume. According to their website, “Top Mortgage Lenders is the mortgage industry’s most comprehensive, most intensely verified list of its kind.” NFM Lending had an overall mortgage volume of $7,971,800,083 and 25,783 loans closed. They moved up from being ranked #43 nationally in 2020. For the second year in a row, they claim the top position in Maryland.

“It’s been a goal for over 20 years to one day be the #1 mortgage lender in the State of Maryland,” said David Silverman, Founder/CEO of NFM Lending. “The fact that we are also in the top 40 in the nation is amazing considering we started this company in 1998 with two people. We will continue to strive to work with the best in the industry while improving our culture. When we do that well, we will continue to climb in the national rankings.”
